Using Paradoxes in Leadership Development - Introducing the Harrison Assessment System
The Harrison Assessment was introduced in the last cohort of Executive Leadership Development Programme 2017, which received tremendous response. Participants, who are currently the senior executives of NGOs, found the tool "useful, inspiring and insightful", by which they had "known more about the contribution of personal traits to leadership".
Harrison Assessment is an on-line personality assessment to predict present and future performance tendencies based on traits characteristics. Its unique Paradox TechnologyTM can accurately determine whether a person’s behavioral tendencies are strengths or derailers in a given role, especially in leadership positions. It also provides employers with a way to emphasize what individuals are doing right, while at the same time encourage balancing factors that will enhance performance and job satisfaction.
The framework provided for organization and individual could serve as an excellent roadmap to personalize management and leadership training as well as self-development.

Tips : Paradox Theory is an application to psychology of Yin-Yang Theory, which Carl Jung extensively studied when developing his own theories. The ancient Chinese body of knowledge known as Yin-Yang Theory was one of the first systems to provide a framework of conceptual opposites. The Harrison Paradox Theory extends that principle to include complementary and paradoxical forces and applies it to specific traits. Harrison Paradox Theory includes a series of principles that can be applied to the individual psyche as well as to organizational dynamics.
The term paradox is used because complementary traits often appear to be contradictory but, in fact, they are not. An example of a paradox used in the Harrison Assessment system is diplomacy and frankness. While these traits may initially appear to be in opposition to each other, they are both favorable (and arguably necessary) traits for success.
